  You do realise that there was an HMS Sabre and an HMS Cutlass too don't you, ?Pretty little boats they were too and most impressive at speedI remember well when some junior Lieutenant drove one into the jetty at Guernsey or Jersey....... I have seen all three of them moored alongside in the Portland naval base where I used to go dinghy sailing whilst I was serving at the Royal Naval Air Station Yeovilton. Those were the days, I loved it but I was into model aircraft at that time, I remember well trying to get a twin engined model Mosquito airborne, it drove me to drink

Mick. nice one. Will look great with some chaps on it. One can only won der what the release of just one torpedo did for the stability of the boat?? perhaps they would have to  release two at a time. Ashley

hiya ashley

i agree with you on the torpedos i presume they would have to drop two a once as they went

over the side of the boat they probably  had to line up the boat  as well  in the direction of the 

target  speak soon mick

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
